The Adaptive Sports Association’s (ASA) winter program has been providing adaptive skiing, snowboarding and a variety of “sit-ski” instruction to people with disabilities for over 30 years. Lessons are typically one-on-one and are offered to people with every type of disability. State-of-the-art equipment and instruction, as well as a “family” atmosphere are hallmarks of ASA’s winter program.
